To turn on or off a particular application from running in the background requires a considerable level of technicality from you. But do not worry, just follow the four simple steps below carefully and you to can become a Windows 10 anniversary update registrar editor. Note, do not do more than the instruction, else you risk reinstalling Windows.

  1. Open the Windows 10 anniversary update registrar.
    You do this by pressing Ctrl+R in your keyboard, then when the Run dialog box appears, type in regedit into it and then click on the OK button.

  2. In the left section of the Registrar, expand the following folders:
    2. Software
    3. Microsoft
    4. Windows
    5. CurrentVersion
    6. BackgroundAccessApplications
      When done, folders represent the list of all Windows 10 anniversary update default application running in the background will be displayed.
      You can identify the application each folder represent by looking carefully at the folder's name. For example the folder which is Microsoft.3DBuilder_8wekyb3d8bbwe represent the 3D Builder application.

  3. So when you have seen the one you want to turn off, click on it.
    On the right section of the registrar, right-click and DWORD (32-bit) Value with the following names: 
    1. Disabled
    2. DisabledByUser
    3. IgnoreBatterySaver
      Note: the DWORD name should be exactly those written above. Anything else will not make it to work.

  4. When you are done, double-click on Disabled and DisaledByUser DWORD and change the value to 1
That is all. The application will be deactivated from running in the background right from that moment. If you want to turn it on back just change the Value from 1 to 0.
Thus, 1 is for OFF
While 0 is for ON.
